Arua Hill aim to halt four match drawing streak as Busoga United visit

Arua Hill players celebrate


Arua Hill welcome relegation strugglers Busoga United at Barifa in one of the three games scheduled for Tuesday.

Arua Hill are currently 6th on the table having garnered 40 points from the 25 games played so far.

The visiting side Busoga United are 11th with 26 points, two above the relegation zone and will be aiming to stretch their proximity from the drop.

Arua Hill come in the encounter having secured four draws in their last four games with their latest being a barren stalemate against KCCA at Lugogo.

They have drawn against Gadaffi (1-1) and goalless against URA at Ndejje and Tooro United at Buhinga.

Livingstone Mbabazi’s immediate assistant, Ahmed Borini has vowed to end the drawing streak with victory today.

Borini said Arua Hill have been playing well but didn’t have luck to turn draws into victories.

” We have gone four games without a win, it’s not our plan. It’s what the game determined. The boys have been working very hard and I think what is affecting us is luck. Sometimes we play very well but if the luck is not on our side, we can’t get the win.”

Borini said in the pre match interview.

Busoga lost their previous game 2-0 to UPDF courtesy of goals from Rogers Adriko and Ibrahim Wammanah.
